The Most Rented Gear of 2017 at Lensrentals.com, Canon Dominates

Lensrentals.com has released their yearly list of the most rented gear in their inventory. Not surprisingly, the list is dominated by Canon and Sony.

1 Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II 11 Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS
2 Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II 12 Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro
3 Canon EOS 5D Mark III 13 Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II
4 Canon EOS 5D Mark IV 14 Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II
5 Sony Alpha a7S II 15 Canon LP-E6N Battery
6 Sony NP-FW50 Battery 16 Nikon D750
7 Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L 17 Sennheiser G3 Wireless Mic Kit -Freq A
8 Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM 18 Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS
9 Canon EOS 6D 19 Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II
10 Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L 20 Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III

A couple of things on the surprise me, firstly the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the lens, and if you’re shooting sports, the IS really isn’t needed. The second surprise for me is how high on the list the EF 50mm f/1.2L is, I didn’t think it would be outrenting the EF 85mm f/1.2L II or the EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS II.

Looking at the list, I think Canon is still doing pretty well in the United States, and it’s going to take a lot more from Sony to surpass Canon in marketshare.
